White Spot detected in NSW

All fisheries have stood quietly with Clarence River prawn fishers as White Spot was detected in Palmer’s Island prawn farms in February, triggering a movement control order.

With the aim of keeping Australia’s status White Spot disease free, including the Clarence River, we have persistently asked for surveillance of retail prawns.

We are also using this latest incursion as demonstration of the need for tighter border and post-border controls.  We are also working with the APFA on what can be done to prevent further incursions so that we can protect the country’s WSSV-free status.
